    It's going to be purchase over by Omni Consumer Products (OCP), with plans for a new "Delta City".

    Everyone knew. For a long time.
    Meredith Whitney said so - point blank - on the TV show "60 Minutes" in 2010. The timing is a bit off. It happened in 2013 and not 2011.
    Why? probably because she warned and people took short term evasive action; but cannot prevent the inevitable.
    Also perhaps due to propping up of the cities during the 2012 US presidential election campaign.
    Meredith Whitney predicted the subprime mortgage crisis. That made her famous.
    In a 500 page report, she predicted the collapse of municipal bonds. It is in writing.

    Yup, back next year to be exact. Hopefully, it is not one of those Hollywood's nostalgic memory raping production.

    There was already two Punisher reboots in 2004 and in 2008 that are both equally terrible, so are you expecting a reboot of the reboot of the reboot?

    Dredd (2012) wasn't bad at all IMHO, it was better than what I had initially expected.
